Litter bins are provided by Great Aycliffe Town Council and Durham County Council. All the litter bins on the Councils parks and open spaces are maintained and emptied by the Town Council. Other litter bins including those next to bus stops are maintained and emptied by Durham County Council.
Great Aycliffe Town Council provides and maintains dog waste disposal bins in all of our parks and open spaces. Durham County Council provides bins in other areas and also empties all dog waste bins in the Parish.
The Town Council currently has a programme for distributing free dog waste bags to owners to encourage responsible owners to pick up after their pet. The bags are available in limited quantities from the Council Offices in School Aycliffe Lane.
